Self-Therapy for the Stutterer
submitted by the Stuttering Foundation of America Self-Therapy for the Stutterer is the classic self-help guide by the founder of The Stuttering Foundation, Malcolm Fraser. It is written to and for the many adults and teens who stutter. The 192-page book is available at most public libraries, including Windham. If you stutter, you do not need to surrender helplessly to your speech difficulty because you can change the way you talk. You can learn to communicate with ease rather than with effort. There is no quick and easy way to tackle the problem, but with the right approach, self- therapy can be effective. This book outlines a self-therapy program which describes what the person who stutters can do to work towards better communication. It is often used as a supplement to speech therapy. A timely feature on page 164 is information about King George VI and how inspirational his speeches were during World War II as depicted in the new movie, The King’s Speech. Writes Charles Van Riper, Ph.D., about this book: “There are always some who stutter who are unable to get professional help and others who do not seem to be able to profit from it. There are some who prefer to be their own therapist. In this book, Malcolm Fraser has provided guidance for those who must help themselves. Knowing well from his own experience as a stutterer the difficulties of self-therapy, he outlines a series of objectives and challenges that should serve as a map for the person who is lost in the dismal swamp of stuttering and wants to find a way out.” The book is available free to all public libraries. If your library
doesn’t have it, ask them to contact the Stuttering Foundation toll-free at 800-992-9392 for a copy.

Windham’s Brian Broom-Peltz to Compete in World MS Excel Championship
submitted by Tulane University Green Wave fans, get ready to cheer on Tulane student Brian Broom-Peltz, who’s competing for a world title August 1-3 in San Diego. Broom-Peltz has been selected to represent the United States in the Microsoft Office Specialist Worldwide Competition in the 2010 Excel category. “This is the world championship,” said Broom-Peltz. “I am going for the gold.” Broom-Peltz, a junior chemical engineering student, will pit his lightning-fast reflexes and finely tuned keyboard muscles against contenders from over 50 countries. They will be required to perform various formatting and function operations in a timed setting. The fact that Broom-Peltz represents the United States is a huge accomplishment, as more than 72,000 United States students competed to demonstrate their proficiency in utilizing various Microsoft applications leading up to the world championships. The top three winners in each category (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) will receive scholarship prizes. Where did Broom-Peltz hone his mad Excel skills?
“My mom has always been queen of the spreadsheet, using it
for everything from organizing events to keeping track of finances. Between watching her use Excel, taking a basic computer applications course in high school, and using it on a routine basis for my engineering courses, I’ve been able secure an excellent foundation in Excel,” said Broom-Peltz. A summer intensive business course taught by professor Urmi Roy in the A.B. Freeman School of Business clinched his knowledge of the software and led to his pursuit of greatness. “I encourage all of my students to enter the Microsoft competition and I was pleased to hear Brian was a finalist,” said Roy. “Microsoft Excel certification is extremely valuable for students going into any field. Many of my former students report that having proof of their skills help them in finding internships and jobs faster in the highly competitive world of business.” How has Broom-Peltz been training in anticipation of the competition? “In addition to lots of Power Bars and Gatorade, I’ve been walking around Excel every other day or so, familiarizing myself more with its organization.” Good luck, Brian! The Green Wave is behind you.
